Meet Jeffrey

LegacyKids gives an offering each Sunday during our Large Group Worship times in both Preschool and Elementary. Money received each week goes to our Compassion child, Jeffrey.  Jeffrey lives in the Philippines and is 11 years old.  The kids love talking about Jeffrey and hearing the letters he writes to us each quarter. They know his name, where he is from, and that the offering (tithe/money) they bring each week goes straight to Jeffrey to help provide him with food, shelter, clothing, school supplies and more. We are so thankful and blessed to be able to sponsor a Compassion child. 

Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult

 

Since 2009 LegacyKids has watched Jeffrey grow into a strong and healthy young man. Within the letters he always recites scripture and gives a warm felt thank you for the gifts he receives from the money we send. He thanks us for shoes, clothes, school supplies and things many times we take for granted. It is such a joy to read the impact the money given each month to Compassion can do for Jeffrey.

 

Compassion is global, reflecting the beautiful diversity of God’s kingdom. Compassion is respectful, protecting the divine character in everyone. Our faith in God and in His promises empowers us to be confident. In the face of evil raging around us, we remain hopeful as we go about our mission of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

Jeffrey is a typical 11 year old boy who enjoys playing basketball, hide and seek, marbles and playing with cars.  He has responsibilities with helping around the house with household errands such as retrieving water, washing dishes and caring for animals. He lives with both his mother and father in a bamboo style home with dirt floors. 

There are currently over 1.7 million children sponsored through Compassion and over the last year 122, 588 children and moms who have accepted Jesus as their Savior.

Thank you for teaching your children the importance of giving. It is making a difference in the life of an 11 year child named Jeffrey who lives in the Philippines.
